POLITICAL OPINIONS
March 10, 2017 08:32PM
I am a proud American retired and disabled. Every time I turn around like today I hear Canadians slamming America. What's up with that? Without America bordering and protecting Canada with a population of 35 million plus or minus would be in the hands of Russia or better yet turn it over to Quebec so the french can control you? I am so tired of Canadians slamming America! If America did not protect you what would you do? Beg for help I would guess?

It's not just Canadians bashing Americans it's people off all nationalities, races bashing whomever. If heard Canadians and Americans bashing others including each other and I've come to the belief that it's usually out of ignorance and/or intolerance. If we just thought of us all as "people" and not labels, the entire world would be a better place.

Good Morning From San Patricio !

Well, I am a proud Canadian....I live in Quebec, though I cannot call myself a Quebecer, being from the English part. I don't hear anyone in Quebec or Ontario slamming the Americans, maybe it's a Western thing. I am reading a wonderful book from the bookshelf at Esmeralda's Restaurant called What is America, A Short History of the New World Order by Ronald Wright. Well written, it explains from the historical beginnings of the rise of America ( basically a blood bath) to where it is today, truly the greatest country in the World. But nothing lasts forever....I hope it lasts me out.....I am 85 years old, so chances are it will!. But you never can tell....things happen pretty fast.

Please don't tar all of us with the same brush. I was brought up to be polite and respect other people's opinions and/or religion and am very proud of what is called our "western hospitality". Unfortunately, as time goes on some of these qualities are lost by certain people, if they even ever had them. I am very happy to have the USA as a neighbor and regret that some folks don't feel the same way.

Dave, we all listen to what interests us, and we have a choice in that. As a Canadian born resident and American citizen, never lived in USA, but pay taxes for the privilege, I can hear your plea. Let's consider the fact that Canada is 10%+- of the US population. Yet, Canada has a larger footprint than the continental USA, tons of resources, speaks the same language and is a trading partner of billions of dollars per day. When America gets indigestion, Canada starts burping, that's how close we are. Brothers with separate Mothers. When people who may be affected and are directly involved have an opinion, it may well be based on what is perceived by us as close neighbours. (notice the spelling) From stock markets to currency valuations, we are lockstep with USA. Bashing, is a perceptive term, depending on where it originates, but certainly the USA does not have a monopoly. Neither do Canadians. Opinions are likely originated from the heart in this case, and people often have little filter on how this is expressed. My personal suggestion is that we all jump, but only AFTER the gun goes off. In our lives, in all likelihood, we may never again see the turmoil and lack of clarity and direction that is currently on our doorstep. Lets all take a deep breath, there will be a tomorrow. Even your view of Canada has some chinks in the armour. Not even all Canadians think the same. Those of us living west of the Rockies have a different nationalistic view of the country, than the eastern populace. Vis a vis California, Oregon and Washington States in the US. So, maybe the answer is to listen and view each of our opinions based on the needs, wants and desires of each of our concerns and accept that, at least with politics, not all of those will be met for everyone, and protest and complaint will be the vent. Just a thought.

Thanks all for your point of view. The fact remains that all of North America are one in the same as far as governmental issues. We all have issues needed to be addressed. I am not saying that America is above any other country. I am saying that I get tired of my country being slammed by those with opinions not warranted. Meaning that most I have met here in Mexico from Canada slam America. I am not at all sure that our new president is the solution to world problems. Let's give him a chance as a business man to at least reduce the spending's to support the thousands of illegals in the country. I live full time in Mexico. If my documents are not in hand they would deport me.

Are you presuming to decide whether opinions are warranted or not???
